We have a two-story, single family home on the near-west side of Chicago (Bucktown), home to Palmer a 12 year old, 50 lb. Sheltie/Shephard/? mix and cats Tunafish and Casserole, 16 years old each and different from one another as can be.
Palmer gets 3 walks a day (early a.m., between 2 and 5 pm, and between 9 and 11 pm). Tuna needs a pill for her high blood pressure once-a-day in the early evening and Cassie needs a warm lap as often as she can locate one.
Other duties are straightforward: a couple of plants to water, mail to pickup, maybe a little snow shoveling or tossing of rock salt for ice.
We have satellite TV, two wood-burning fireplaces, a jacuzzi and broadband Internet access in a safe, hip neighborhood close to public transportation, great boutiques and restaurants.
We seek a responsible single or couple to care for our house and pets while we're out of the country for nearly 3 weeks. Please have references available when you reply to this ad.
